Silence is golden, duct tape is silver. That was printed on one of my son’s t-shirts that he wore in high school. They actually put real duct tape on the shirt over the screen printed version. I always got a kick out of his shirts with the crazy sayings on them. Now he is all grown up and left for work today wearing a suit and tie. Where does the time go?
The reason I am thinking about silence, is because my husband came back from vacation and the house is no longer silent. Some people cannot live with complete silence, they have to have a tv or radio on for the background noise. I am apparently not one of those people. I am perfectly content to read cookbooks, and plan menus in complete silence.
Okay, back to the reason why you are here…..the Garlic Dinner Rolls recipe that I promised last week. Holy Mother of all Things Delicious, these rolls are awesome! They are soft, and light, and garlicky, and oh my… I might just eat the whole batch good.
I made these Dinner Rolls for Thanksgiving (with plain butter on top) and fell in love. Cassi is going to freak out when she comes home and tries these babies! The original recipe brushes a honey/butter mixture on top, but that sounded too sweet to me. When I tried the dinner rolls at Napoli’s Restaurant, I thought of these rolls and decided to give it a try. They are thicker than Napoli’s, but everything else is dead on perfect!
I dare you to eat just one! 😉
